The Viral Facebook Privacy Hoax Is Back And Still Ridiculous As Ever
You've seen it up and down your News Feed, and while the copy/pasted message may be slightly changed in terms of wording, it's the same ridiculous hoax that we've seen time and time again.
This is false. Anyone who uses Facebook owns and controls the content and information they post, as stated in our terms. They control how that content and information is shared. That is our policy, and it always has been.
Also, the reason the message asks users to "copy and paste" is so that Facebook can't track down the original post through sharing. Clever, but still aggravating, lol. Of course most people still share it saying that "it can't hurt" to share it. This is true—unless, of course, you count your reputation.
In short, please stop sharing this ridiculously obvious hoax so it can just go away once and for all.
